What is an Exam Preparation Program?

Global Village Victoria offers full-time, part-time and customised private schedules to help exam candidates prepare for the exam of their choice.

Our most popular programs involve a combination of morning and afternoon option classes that combine exam taking skills with academic or general English language skills to produce a more organic learning experience with like-minded students in a classroom setting.

Our Exam Preparation Program at Global Village.

Global Village Victoria helps candidates prepare for IELTS (International English Language Testing System), Cambridge B2 First and C1 Advanced as well as the CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program). These exams are useful to prove your English proficiency when applying for work, getting into universities and colleges as well as for immigration to an English-Speaking country.

 

For those exams that contain a grammatical and lexical component, there is also focussed practice on structural forms, relevant vocabulary and lexical collocations that are often found in the exam and can be useful to display a more competent understanding of the usage of the English language. For full-time learners, these exam-focussed lessons are offset with more communicative skill-based classes that attempt to help the candidate learn the language in a more contextual, task-based environment and in this way formulate a more well-rounded, organic learning experience.
